Mass incarceration is an epidemic that has been sweeping this country for quite sometime. The United States locks up more people than any other nation on the face of this earth! Tonight we will be interviewing some dedicated people that are speaking up against this practice that is plaguing our nation.!
At the end of 2009, 743 adults were incarcerated per 100,000 of the population. According to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics, 2,266,800 adults were incarcerated in U.S. federal and state prisons, and county jails at the end of 2011. Additionally, 4,814,200 adults were on probation or on parole at the end of 2011. Equally 6,977,700 adults were under correctional supervision (probation, parole, jail, or prison) at the end of 2011.
On this episode, we’re going to address the rising number of incarcerations, as well as the issues of housing these inmates. Being that prisons and incarceration is BIG BUSINESS, and has a revenue of more than $1.7 Billion annually, it's not surprising that there are plans to build more jails and prisons, as well as the reconstruction of current facilities to accommodate the projection of housing more inmates.
We are pleased to have a well versed panel that will address these issues:
Our sponsor and great friend, Vonya Quarls of Shades of Afrika, will address the construction and realignment plans. Fanya Baruti will be speaking on the alternatives to jail expansion, and Diana Zuniga will cover the California State Court order and budget.
Please join us for this enlightening topic on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 at 9pm PST/ 11pm CST/ 12 Midnight EST.
You’re welcome to phone in live on-air to (646)200-3148. Or listen online and join the chatroom conversation.

What is the effect of mass incarceration on urban black families?
More than seven times as many people are incarcerated in the United States as in Europe. The main victims of the prison boom are minority, particularly African American, men, who, as sociologist Bruce Western has found, are eight times more likely to have served time in prison than white men. The effects of mass incarceration extend beyond the prisoner and his immediate experience of confinement, and can have a significant impact on the prisoner’s family. A slew of recent studies by Western and others suggests that the wave of mass incarceration contributes to the decline of families and the social fabric that binds them, leading to the further disintegration of already-disadvantaged inner-city neighborhoods.

(S5) KINGS Presents....
Literary Author, Green Leader, Vegan Athlete, Youth Worker, and Health Advocate, Jarid Manos. who'll discuss Restoration Not Incarceration, and his bok "Ghetto Plainsman" on A Touch of Grace; Saturday, 6/14/2014 @ (1:30PM, p.s.t./4:30PM, e.s.t.). To listen to the show click the link,or: ON DAY OF SHOW ONLY: Call in to speak with the host 347-215-7169.
Jarid Manos is a featured guest speaker at universities, jails, churches (and other places of faith), organizations, events, conferences, businesses, chambers of commerce, and schools nationwide.
A vegan athlete, Manos was named in 2003 to the original Board of Directors of the Black Vegetarian Society of Texas.
He is currently volunteering with the Youth Diving With A Purpose program of the National Association of Black Scuba Divers.
Ghetto Plainsman, Jarid Manos’ first book, took eight years to write. Her Blue Watered Streets: An American Novel has been over 5 years in the writing. Manos believes that writers should honor their readers’ time with exacted craft and fully inhabited, conscious writing and that, at its best, American literature can be transformative for social and personal change through an experiential story. Theme-wise, he is particularly interested in the American story of people on the land, whether it is the remnant wild or the urban hidden world. The land becomes a living character itself, and we become part of it. Stories of people’s lives embed in the land like geographic layers as time moves on.
